“I was in the gas chamber and I did not die. Something was wrong with the mechanism and we walked out. Because God saved my life I have a duty, a mission, to educate and to be observant. Some survivors ask ‘where was God?’ but who are we to ask?”

Gena Turgel survived Paszov, Auschwitz, Buchenwald and then worked in a hospital in Bergen-Belsen.
